An Introduction to Transgender Terms and Concepts[ edit ] This first chapter, however, is an overview of the topic of transgenderism and outlines Stryker's definition of common terms and concepts used throughout the work. This chapter also deals with the current arguments and discussions about transgender people. Multiple reviewers noted that Stryker's definition of transgender , as stated in the book as "people who move away from the gender they were assigned at birth, people who cross over trans- the boundaries constructed by their culture to define and contain their gender" forms a historical discussion that allows for a "history sensitive to a wide range of identities and experiences". At the same time, the chapter discusses how the earliest forms of the transgender movement began and groups and organizations began to form.
